A 21-year-old mechanic from Moonachie accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl was being held $300,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail following his arrest yesterday.

Eduardo Mendiola was charged with aggravated sexual assault, sex assault and child endangerment, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli announced this afternoon.

The girl “disclosed to her mother what had taken place” and she went to Moonachie police, who notified Molinelli’s Special Victims Unit, the prosecutor said.

A detective then interviewed the girl, who “provided specific details,” he said.

Mendiola, who is single, was given a June 17 arraignment date.
